Jim Rohn's 5 Sources of Inspiration

This is part 3 of a 3 part post on Inspiration. If you have not read part 1 and part 2 please check them out.

Building on my previous post on inspiration, I was inspired to re-purpose these 5 sources of inspiration from a Jim Rohn speech he gave in Anaheim, California.

Inspiration ultimately comes back to being an artist by creating, producing and making things happen. These 5 sources make this point so well. If you truly want to be inspired, create more and and consume less. Be the person who "makes and consumes" instead of the person who just "takes and consumes".

1. Deciding

How true. This is where it begins. Decide and don't look back. Commit and let your yes mean yes. When you draw a line in the sand and say. "That it's, no matter what, I am going to......"

It is in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped. --Tony Robbins

2. Planning

This is the part of the process that develops the faith and conviction to take the first step. Faith helps you see the achievement before it actually arrives. Faith is like a cup of coffee as it....(you finish the sentence)

3. Beginning

Oh the first step is the best. If you can take one you can take two. Action gets the ball rolling. This is where the rubber meets the road.

4. Progressing

This is about staying at it. Action creates momentum. Momentum creates satisfaction. Momentum matures into inertia to keep going. Failing to give up is the right kind of failure.

5. Achieving

Now you've done it. Celebrate! Rinse and repeat.

When you need a break form all the creating, sit back and observe nature, creation at its finest!
